Traffic jams. They're big problem in many cities. They add to pollution and waste people's time and energy - not to mention stirring up feelings of anger and frustration. It can be quicker to get around town by walking or on a bike. And, of course, in big cities you can take underground railways, or metros, to beat the jams.
But what if you're in a smaller city that doesn't have metros or trams? That's what researchers at the University of Lorraine in France have been telling WoW! News this week. Hear from Léo Periol, one of the students involved, about Urbanloop - a kind of cross between a driverless electric car and a tram system running on rails - by checking out our new weekly news app.
Within three years, Urbanloop could be running in the streets of Nancy in eastern France - and visitors to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris will be able to experience it there. Hop aboard!
